Rob Naylor BS: Costa Coffee sold to Coca-Cola (61* d) RE: BS: Costa Coffee sold to Coca-Cola 04 Sep 18

Sen: Gosh, hasn't Britain changed since the end of the War Steve? I remember the fifties when nobody round our way ever drank coffee. It was tea all day and cocoa at night. We children also drank gallons of milk.

In the late 50s my family pretty well all drank coffee (Mum, dad, 3 aunts and 2 uncles living on the same street). My Grandma drank " 'ot watter wi' a drop o' milk in" an another aunt rarely seemed to drink anything at all except a Mackeson at about 6pm. Tea rarely got a look-in.

When one of my aunts used to take us out for walks (I'm probably talking about 1959-63 here) we always seemed to end up in a "coffee bar" for a cup of frothy coffee and a Wagon Wheel!
